The only “white collar” professional position that requires no formal qualifications is the Presidency of the United States!
The only requirements are to be 35 years of age, a citizen of the United States, and be alive when elected!
No professional job–doctor, lawyer, professor, accountant, engineer or others–allows the success of a person who is ignorant, lacking in knowledge, or comes across as weird or lazy, except the Presidency of the United States!
So Herman Cain can claim to know nothing, and lean on “experts” to come up with all the answers to every problem. It is true that a President needs top advisers, but he also should be well informed about the major issues that he or she will have to deal with.
No matter how much a fool Herman Cain, or Michele Bachmann, or Rick Perry is, they can claim they are qualified to be President! The Republicans offer us people who are ill qualified to be our Commander in Chief, and ignores the qualified candidates such as Jon Huntsman, who SHOULD be the GOP nominee and give us hope for the party’s future!
The only hope is that the voters know how to sort out who should be eliminated, as no voter should want a person who is just “ordinary” to be the leader of the free world in the 21st century!
What we need are the best among us, NOT the ignorant among us, to lead America into the future!
